A patient may not always be in the best state to report to a doctor's office if they have an illness. In these cases, proper medical care can still be sought by scheduling a sick visit from a physician - especially if the case concerns a child or newborns.
In fact, it's with pediatric treatment and care where sick visits truly shine. Even if internal medicine, preventive medicine, or mental health treatment, sick visits are mostly centered around child care - though an increasing number of people have started taking advantage of the benefits of health care at a distance or in the comfort of their own homes.
A sick visit is an ideal option for a person to take if their symptoms are too severe to visit a clinic themselves, or if the information about their condition makes it unsafe for them to be in a waiting room. The Rejuvenation Center For Mind And Body can send a nurse practitioner or any of our medical staff to your location to conduct your appointment.
For extremely young children, newborns, and the elderly, we can also conduct business like annual physicals, wellness checks, and even immunizations from the comfort of your own home. Our services in-clinic and at-home are carried with the same care and attention you've come to expect from a medical practice.
One of the most common reasons why you’d want to schedule a sick visit is if there’s a child in the household. Children (especially those who haven’t been vaccinated or have pre-existing conditions) are extremely vulnerable to sickness, especially to conditions like the common cold. A sick visit is an excellent way to get your child checked without further exposing them to additional viruses and bacteria.
Additionally, sick visits for children also prevent other children from catching sickness in the waiting room. Pediatric clinics may sometimes be filled to capacity - especially during seasons when the flu is common - so getting your child examined can be a risk. A sick visit is more sanitary and works well with very young children and newborns since they don’t need to be subjected to either travel or other people aside from their immediate family.
While sick visits have been extremely useful for children, the rate of adults that look for remote appointments has been steadily increasing. The times when you'd need to go through a receptionist to get a diagnosis for a sore throat are long gone: with telemedicine, virtual visits, and remote appointments, getting a diagnosis from your home has never been easier.
Health services have greatly expanded the possibility of remote treatments and procedures, with patients connecting with doctors in real-time without the hassle of travel. While a face-to-face consultation may still be the best way to be examined for a serious medical emergency, remote sick visits for adults are an excellent way for a provider to keep in touch with a person for more routine or mild medical concerns.
Scheduling sick visits has gotten even easier with the advent of social media and different forms of communication. While a past appointment may have needed email or going through a phone line, today's smartphone revolution has made it possible for someone to schedule a remote visit for someone even when they're not there.
This flexibility is a great asset for people who have someone at home who can't necessarily make the appointment themselves, like older adults or the bedridden. With a few simple clicks from your phone, laptop, or PC, your entire family and loved ones can experience on-demand healthcare even if you aren't in the house with them.
At The Rejuvenation Center For Mind And Body, we believe that health services should always be accessible to anyone, no matter where they are. As a healthcare provider, we pride ourselves on offering our extensive experience to your children, family, and loved ones even when you can't make it to our clinic.
Led by Dr. Eugene Festa, our practice has the experience and equipment required to bring your appointment from our clinic to the comfort of your home, whether it's for a primary care concern or a medical emergency. Contact us today to learn more about how you can avail of our services via a virtual visit or telemedicine.
